The typical hospital sees tens of thousands of patients every year, providing each with one or more of hundreds of possible treatments and seeking reimbursement from a variety of payment sources, each with its own eligibility and process rules. The inherent complexity of the patient access process causes errors that frustrate patients and physicians alike, while hospitals incur extra costs and lose revenue.
